I didn't think of that, and now that I do, that sucks if they don't have more than one for the shows. I may have to go to the New York car show then.

Two gaping holes on each corner of front bumper, same on the rear... "TypeR VTEC Sparco" mirror design... More "fat" (longer, wider) than current 3-series coupe... Non-functional plastic spacers in a shape of "kidney grill"... "L.L. Bean edition" cupholders... Altogether looks awful, just as I expected from "new design language". Oh well, 12-year-old kiddies and simple-minded badge whores will still be throwing their (or their parent's) money at BMW when it will hit dealership in its final form (which I doubt will change in any significant way from this concept)

I'll be there this Saturday, but I'm not anticipating seeing any of the cars I wanted to see for BMW. I think the i3 might be there, otherwise its gonna be the standard lineup.
Ugh, No 3-series wagon at the car show?

Honestly, the low sales of that car in the U.S. are becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.

That car is 90% awesome and 10% hideous.

Overall the lines are great and the lights look sweet.

however, The front and rear lower facia just ruin it. It looks like an ugly dog with a stick in its mouth.

That individual interior looks straight out some d-bag's living room in Scottsdale.

Will the production car look the same as the concept car? Does it ever? I've only recently been following bimmers so I don't know..

Gorgeous, but I'm not in this market. Too expensive and too big for a 2-seater that you'll struggle to parallel park in a city. If I had a McMansion in the 'burbs and a spare garage bay, this would be fun!

way too much bling. it's busy and over-styled. if i was 18 i would probably be in love with it. now as an adult, i prefer a gentleman's car that's cleaner and more elegant.

It will be toned down by the time it gets to production. A lot of the bling like the mirrors, door handles, etc. will end up looking like the F30 sedan.
